Contemporary Vision

At Parramatta Marist we believe that it is important to develop both the intellectual and spiritual aspects of all students. Therefore, we aim to provide a rich, relevant and engaging curriculum through the use of contemporary teaching practices and learning experiences.

 

Parramatta Marist has ventured overseas in search for the best teaching practices for its students. Both Project and Problem Based Learning provides students with an innovative and engaging curriculum that promotes ‘trust, respect and responsibility’.

The culture of learning that underpins these contemporary practices focuses not only knowledge attainment but also on the development of 21st century skills. These skills are:

  •  A Growth Mindset
  • Teamwork and Collaboration
  • Presentation Skills
  • Literacy and Numeracy Skills

At Parramatta Marist we believe that these skills are essential in the holistic development of our students.

As a Catholic Marist School we aim for students to develop a sense of respect for themselves, their peers and God. We offer a safe learning environment where students feel they belong and are able to work to the best of the their ability.
